High-Rise Scaling Raccoon Makes It To Roof Of St. Paul Office Tower

- A raccoon got itself into quite a predicament as it scaled a tower in St. Paul Minnesota. Workers in the office building, whose windows are sealed shut, anxious as the critter scuttled past their offices and rested on window ledges.

Evan Frost, also of MPR News, tweeted the raccoon got a visit from the St. Paul Fire Department, and that cat food had been placed on the roof of the building. On a window ledge on the 22nd floor, it paused to rest.

On Tuesday, the raccoon slowly scaled the UBS building, reaching the 23rd floor as its legend grew on social media with every floor it climbed.

It was dubbed the #MPRraccoon because Minnesota Public Radio, whose offices are in a nearby building, documented the animal's long, unusual trip.

"Any other measures we think would endanger him".

We certainly hope this all ends happily, but we can't say exactly when that will be. Finally, at 2:30am on Wednesday, the hero raccoon reached the summit of the building and scampered off happily to find a waiting meal.

Minnesota Pubic Radio staffers managed to snag naming rights for the animal - inundating the internet with the Twitter hashtag #MPRRaccoon, which promptly caught on. As you can see in the image below, it seems the general public may be more concerned about the situation than the raccoon is.

There is not a whole lot that St. Paul Animal Control can do because a rescue mission would be too unsafe for both the raccoon and the workers. The drama started after maintenance workers removed the creature from the roof of a St Paul office block.

Of course, Twitter being Twitter, there's already an account for the MPRRaccoon with a sassy, liberal voice.
